Narasi.net – The withdrawal of the so-called Russian troops does not seem to have caused the West to calm down. In its latest comments, NATO said there was still a Russian military buildup on the Ukrainian border.
“We’ve heard signs coming from Moscow … but so far, we haven’t seen any de-escalation on the ground,” NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday. “On the contrary, it appears that Russia is continuing their military build-up.”
He said Russia’s statement still had to be proven. He promised that NATO would consistently monitor Russian convoys around Ukraine. “If they do start withdrawing troops, that’s something we will welcome. But that remains to be seen.”
US President Joe Biden said the same thing. He warned that Russian aggression was still too possible. He said Washington and its allies had not verified the withdrawal of tens of thousands of troops along the Ukrainian border.
He reminded again of the fact that Russia had more than 100,000 troops surrounding Ukraine, including in Belarus.
Earlier, Russia confirmed it had withdrawn troops from the Ukrainian border to the base.
This coincided with the end of the military training being carried out. “Units of the Southern Military District, have completed their participation in tactical exercises and moved to their permanent deployment points,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
State television also showed images of military units crossing a bridge connecting the Russian-controlled peninsula to the mainland. Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei also said the same thing.
He stressed that no Russian troops will remain in the country after the massive joint military exercises of Minsk and Moscow at the end of the Ukrainian border are over. “Not a single (Russian) soldier or unit of military equipment will stay on Belarusian territory after the exercises with Russia,” Makei said.
